Network capacity allocation and reservation webinar

Sep 10 2020

Join us for a webinar on Sep 10, 2020 at 2:00 PM BST. Sign up here.

We previously consulted with stakeholders on a proposed approach to the way in which we allocate and reserve network capacity to customers requiring multiple new electricity connections within a defined development area. We delayed implementation whilst we discussed a number of stakeholder queries with the proposals and will now look to implement a revised version of the process. Our aim is to provide customers who hold an offer for connection with a reasonable level of assurance that the capacity that they have requested will be available for their use during a prescribed period, whilst at the same time, protect other customers who have a more pressing need for capacity and face having to pay a higher connection charge for reinforcement works deemed necessary due to existing capacity being reserved by others.

The webinar will cover three key stages in the provision of capacity to new connections customers;
i) initial application requirements
ii) Connection offer letter changes
iii) Post acceptance requirements, including milestones
Iv) reservation of capacity post-acceptance and post-energisation

During the webinar we want to convey our rationale for arriving at our latest policy decisions so that customers have a good understanding of our working practices going forward and to receive feedback on them.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
